Handmade to order
An unusual map of England & Wales, showing a highly detailed view of the geology (rock formations) of the two nations. This map is available in sizes from 12x16 inches (30x40cm), to 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 inches (46x60cm), all the way up to 40x50 inches (100x125cm).
This geologist map was created by Roderick Impey Murchison and published by Chapman & Hall in 1843.
There is an incredible level of detail on this map, with dozens of annotations, towns, and other landmarks. It is incredibly rare to find a detailed, full colour map from the 1840s. No matter what size map you get, you'll be able to read all of the smallest place names.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport. Please contact me if you would like to frame one of the larger prints for a custom order.
Please note: The unframed 24x30 inch map will have white edges on the left and right that can be easily snipped off with scissors or a hobby knife. Or this might help you with mounting on a frame! (All framed maps, and other map sizes, will be exactly as per the listing images.)
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.

I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
